    The Emergency Management Centre-Animal Health (EMC-AH) activity report reflects how through the core pillars of its strategic action plan: preparedness, response, incident coordination, collaboration and resource mobilization, EMC-AH contributed to strengthening resilience of livelihoods to animal health-related emergencies and zoonoses. The report addresses EMC-AH performance and actions for the twelve-month period of November 2020–October 2021 and illustrates EMC-AH’s commitment to transparency and accountability. Despite restrictions imposed due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, EMC-AH continued to effectively and rapidly support FAO divisions, country and regional offices, and international partners, to reduce the threat of animal diseases to food security, agricultural development, social stability and trade.

    This past year, as the leading global centre for animal health emergency management, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Emergency Management Centre for Animal Health (EMC-AH), a joint platform linking FAO’s Office of Emergencies and Resilience, and the Animal Production and Health Division, has continued to provide preparedness, response and incident coordination support to FAO Members, despite the restrictions imposed by the pandemic. This report highlights the activities carried out and led by EMC-AH during the reporting period (November 2019 to October 2020) under the four pillars of the Centre’s Strategic Action Plan: preparedness, response, incident coordination, and collaboration and resource mobilization. EMC-AH ensures a One Health approach to its many activities, collaborating with the World Health Organization and the World Organisation for Animal health, among other external partners, to coordinate effectively, such as through Incident Coordination Groups. This collaboration has enabled the development of a global and regional animal health emergency coordination strategy, and an animal health emergency operations management manual, in addition to emergency response missions where zoonotic diseases are concerned. The activities reported in this publication demonstrate how EMC-AH works hand-in-hand with other FAO divisions, country and regional offices, and international partners to reduce the threat of high-impact animal diseases to food security, agricultural development and trade. This work is made possible thanks to the financial and technical support of the Centre’s donors and partner organizations.

    The concept of One Health is woven into the fabric of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Emergency Management Centre for Animal Health (EMC-AH). EMC-AH was created in 2006 as a global response platform to the outbreak of H5N1, a disease which affects both animals and humans. Part of EMC-AH’s mandate was to collaborate, at the global level, with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) to address the outbreak and engage in a One Health approach. Since its establishment, EMC-AH continues to carry out its activities in close collaboration with One Health partners. By engaging in One Health activities, EMC-AH supports FAO’s Strategic Framework 2022-20311 through its Programme Priority Area (PPA) BP3 (Better Production – One Health). Under the new PPA, EMC-AH is supporting the design and implementation of preparedness and response activities worldwide.
